WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 16th April, 2019) Apple will contribute to Notre Dame's rebuilding efforts following Monday's devastating fire that damaged the historic cathedral in the heart of Paris, company CEO Tim Cook said in a statement on Tuesday.
"Apple will be donating to the rebuilding efforts to help restore Notre Dame's precious heritage for future generations," Cook said via Twitter.
Cook said that he is heartbroken for the people of France and everyone around the world for whom the Notre Dame cathedral was a symbol of hope.
On Monday evening, a massive fire broke out at the Notre Dame de Paris, causing the collapse of the cathedral's spire and two-thirds of its roof.
The blaze was fully extinguished on Tuesday morning.
French President Emmanuel Macron described the incident as a "terrible tragedy" and promised to rebuild the 850-year-old cathedral.
The cause of the blaze remains unclear but may have been linked it to renovation work. Earlier on Tuesday, Paris Prosecutor Remy Heitz said that ignition was considered to be most likely the cause of the incident.
